GRADING SYLLABUS

BACKGROUND

Most Martial Art schools adopt a system to measure their students’ personal progress. These systems vary between styles and clubs but will typically require a periodic test of physical and technical development commonly referred to as a grading assessment. Upon successful completion, the student will most likely be rewarded with a coloured belt or sash corresponding to the relevant grade.

The Fusion MAC belt structure is as follows..

WHITE (under 8’s only) | RED | YELLOW | GREEN | PURPLE | PURPLE/WHITE

(Senpai)
BROWN | BROWN/WHITE | BROWN/2WHITE

(Sensei)
BLACK (1st Dan, 2nd Dan, 3rd Dan…)

ASSESSMENT CRITERIA

In order to be considered for promotion, there are a number of bench marks each student must achieve before undergoing a grading assessment. There are as follows..

Attendance – The higher the grade, the more sessions will be required.
Competence – Students must practice grade-appropriate techniques and combinations to become proficient before entering for an exam.
Other Factors – May include but are not limited to, a high level of fitness, technical improvement (since previous grading) and a positive attitude to training and representing the Fusion ethos. 

Each student can log their attendance and track their progress at any time using the GymDesk operating system mentioned above.

ASSESSMENT SCORING

Assessments are divided into sections and each section is given a score. The total score will not only determine whether the grading is a pass or fail but also provide an indication of how well the student compares to the required standard.

6-9 points = First class pass, this is rare and an excellent score to achieve.
10-18 points = Second class pass, This is the norm and an acceptable pass.
19-27 points = Third class pass, A low score meaning big improvements must be made before the student may grade again.
28-30 points = Failed Grading. The assessment must be re taken at a later date.

COMPETITIONS AND EVENTS

Please ensure you familiarise yourself with the running order and rules for each competition before you attend as each may differ. This will be covered in more detail during the fight squad training sessions. Be sure to take your Fusion MAC uniform and full sparring kit. 

Fighters should conduct themselves in a professional manor both on and off the mats. Spectators are asked to keep their support positive and encouraging towards our fighters and refrain from interfering with decisions made by coaches and referees.

Competitions can often last a full day so we advise you take plenty of healthy snacks and drinks. Typically they start with weigh-ins and match-ups before moving on to the younger/lighter competitors. Women and men tend to compete towards the end of the day.

Organised events will specify their own rules and running orders. We advise speaking with your coach if you require further details.
